Long queues for print jobs might finally be coming to an end. The new “Print Kiosk” in the library aims to cut down the waiting time by having a remote location with a single release station connected to a single printer.

Students can upload documents to “myPrint” through any remote location via computer or mobile device and print it out from the kiosk.

“It’s very well marked. I think the students will find it easy to walk up to. It’s just like the release stations in any other labs. It’s the same format. There’s the usual username and password that use paper cut to print,” said Wayne McDaniel, electronic tech supervisor in the computing centre.

According to Chance Eppinette, director of the computing centre, the main purpose of the new printer is to make printing tasks convenient for students.

“As they’re coming to classes up on the third floor of the library, they can just stop by that print release station and print out their documents and not have to wait around lab, necessarily,” Eppinette said.
